NETGEAR Ethernet Switches

Most companies have warranty contracts or prefer a specific type of equipment to match their current environment. Smaller environments that don't have a policy for a specific device, or someone looking for a good switch with a low cost would be where I have currently utilized these switches. I don't see why these switches couldn't be used in a larger environment, although I have not tested them in a corporate environment. In home or small office environments, these have worked very well.

Cons

NETGEAR Ethernet Switches

  • Better advertisement about advanced enterprise features. My experience is with smaller switches and not with the fully managed switches.

Alternatives Considered

NETGEAR Ethernet Switches

Netgear stacks up fairly well against Linksys in terms of the SOHO switches. Easy to install, clean look, and solid functionality.

Return on Investment

NETGEAR Ethernet Switches

  • Rarely need to reboot or troubleshoot the SOHO switches.
  • Low cost for the functionality. For example, 8 port GB switches for $20 is a no brainer for a home environment that doesn't need vlans or more enterprise type features.
  • No negative impact on any environment I am aware of, however have not tested in a larger environment with multiple switches.
